Successful Assembly of Compendium Experts in Wroclaw
With a focus on "A Human Rights Approach to Cultural Policies" (see Agenda), the 14th Compendium Assembly has been held on 12-13 November 2015 in Wroclaw, in the broader context of the city's role as European Capital of Culture 2016. Similar to the previous Assemblies in Brussels and Vienna, the Wroclaw event contributed to the follow-up of the Ministerial Conference on Culture (Moscow 2013). In addition, it examined the latest developments and potential improvements of our information and monitoring system. The presentations and debates of the Assembly with Public Forum attracted ca. 90 cultural specialists from all parts of Europe and Asia.

Culture & Democracy
Introducing new elements in the THEMES section
Since the start of the Compendium project over 15 years ago, topics like cultural access and participation for different groups of the population or multi-stakeholder governance issues were seen as important themes to be dealt with on this information and monitoring platform. Until a few years, related information and data could be found mainly in various sub-sections of individual Compendium country profiles as well as in a number of comparative / statistical tables.
Check the Intercultural Cities Index!
The ICC Index - with a focus on the intercultural integration of migrants and minorities - attempts to assess and compare the current status and performance of now 100 cities (with more to come in the near future).
The city of Parla was recently added to the ICC Index while Cartagena, Fuenlabrada, Getxo, Reggio Emilia, Sabadell, Santa Colomba and Tenerife have been re-indexed in 2015!
